The open mic at Downtown Berkeley’s Freight & Salvage is one of those rare events that local pros flock to watch (Dana Carvey once held the mic). Rather than performing in a dingy setting battling chatty audiences, this beloved venue stage showcases each artist like they’re a headliner. It’s first-come, first-serve, with doors opening at 7pm (check the calendar to see which Monday or Tuesday night of the month it lands on), and enjoy the appreciative vibes in a beautiful setting.
